. nick paton walsh for us this morning in dagestan. we have further information about dzhokhar tsarnaev. here here in boston in the hospital after he suffered massive blood loss. that's where we find pamela brown this morning. what have we learned? >> reporter: we are learning new information this morning. we learned from a department of justice official that federal prosecutors have been here at the hospital since last night figuring out possible charges to bring forward and we're learning from that official that those charges will be coming soon even possibly while the suspect is still here at the hospital. now, we don't know the extent of the charges that will be brought forward but according to the doj official, the suspect will face terrorism charges. he is in federal custody. he will be charged with federal charges and he could face murder charges on the state level. now interesting to note here, there is no death penalty here in the state of massachusetts but the death penalty could be sought on the federal level since that supersedes state charges. no charges have been brought f
that possibly dzhokhar tsarnaev is coming back to consciousness and able to communicate with investigators. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley
see dzhokhar tsarnaev just after the murder of an m.i.t. police officer. >> first the headline from the suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, we acted alone. a u.s. government source quotes the surviving suspect saying the older brother was the master mind and they had no international ties to terror groups. he also says the men were motivated by radical islam and the jihadist goal of waging a holy war. they learned to make their bombs from readily available instructions on the internet. deborah has the latest from new york. >> wolf, we can tell you investigators are painting a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this tamerlan tsarnaev was living. his pull here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucasus. what we can tell you this morning is that the m.i.t. officer that was shot to death did not radio into dispatch to request a description of the suspect and he did not alert dispatch he was responding to the two men who apparently came up to him totally unaware. he was shot four to five times according to a source. it took at least nearly 13 minutes to actually f
afford an attorney, he replied no. among the charges, 19-year-old suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev faces one count of using a weapon of mass destruction. which carries a potential maximum sentence of death. we've learned despite the injury to his neck, he is cooperating with investigators, writing his answers to at least some of their questions. sources tell abc news, among the details he has provided is that he and his brother learned how to make bombs from the internet. >> it was his brother, the primary motivating force for him to become radicalized. why did they end up doing what they did on that day? >> reporter: much of the investigation is still focused on his deceased 26-year-old brother tamerlan. examining his life, his recent trip back to russia, as some question if the fbi did enough to monitor him after they questioned him two years ago. >> they investigated it thoroughly and did not find terrorist activity domestic or foreign. >> reporter: the street where two bombs killed three people and injured more than 200 others is handed over from the fbi to the city of boston for the ong
as dzhokhar tsarnaev lies in a hospital bed facing charges. his condition now reported as fair. more than a week after the bombing, 45 of the scores of wounded remain hospitalized, and at least 13 have lost limbs. for the victims, the physical and emotional toll comes with a very real financial one as well. massive bills for trauma care, prosthetic limbs and even home modifications. not to mention, lengthy physical rehab and psychological counseling. as such, one fund boston is stepping in to help. already raising over $10 million for victims and their families. and while the injured struggle with recovery, the families of those killed in the bombing are facing their own staggering loss. the family of 8-year-old martin richard held a private memorial releasing a statement today, "this has been the most difficult week of our lives, and we appreciate that our friends and family have given us space to grieve and heal. a private funeral mass was celebrated this morning with immediate family. we laid our son, martin, to rest, and he is now at peace." and friends, family and colleagues are sayi
. police cornered 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev in a two-hour standoff. he was hiding in a boat in the backtown of a watertown home. he had been shot, he lost a lot of blood. this morning he is in a boston area hospital. at last check he was listed in serious condition. after his capture, massachusetts governor deval patrick and authorities praised police efforts and the community's cooperation. >> it was a very, very complicated case, a very challenging case, and there are still some questions remaining to be answered. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this
government official and this is a preliminary investigation but dzhokhar tsarnaev is saying the following to investigators. first of all, there were no foreign terrorist groups involved. that this was two brothers acting on their own. dzhokhar, not surprisingly is saying he was following his older brother tamerlan and tamerlan was the one who was the driving force behind this. in addition, there's an indication from the interviews that the brothers were self radicalized on-line. they were getting information from videos on-line, you tube videos on-line but not from communication or e-mail the way the ft. hood shooter was but they were very much self starters, self radicalized. the older brother, it seems from preliminary investigation, to have been motivated by jihad, traditional jihad motivation and political implications that they are under attack and jihad dis need to fight back. this is from preliminary interviews with this individual, with dzhokhar tsarnaev. >> the interviews have been limited. >> very limited. everything needs to be checked out. the investigators will follow up. the
that dzhokhar tsarnaev, the one everybody is looking for, might be just a few blocks down here at an office complex. a security sensor had been -- had tipped off that there was, authorities, there was some intrusion that led everybody to think he was there. cars were zooming down here with screaming lights, and that turned out to be a wash. so i think that's just another reminder of how cautious we have to be until we know for sure where things stand. what we do know is he's on the loose. we do know -- we don't know -- there's no confidence that they know where he is and whether or not he has any accomplices. that may be an open question at this point. and probably the biggest open question of all is whether there are any more explosive devices, any ieds out there that he's left to maim and kill people that they don't know about. one was found in boston earlier today, and that may be the scariest singleknow, though, th police have been going door-to-door in this area all day. how far along do you think they are in securing the area? because as i understand it, at 12:30 when governor deval p

who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
abc's senior correspondent pierre thomas in washington. pierre, dzhokhar tsarnaev is in serious condition, and in no shape to be questioned. >> my sources are telling me that the suspect has a wound to the throat and neck area, that's made it very difficult to speak. he apparently knows police killed his brother, but that special interrogation team is standing by, ready to go. >> and they'll ask him questions at first without reading him his miranda rights. when do you expect charges to be filed? >> charges could come as early today. terror charges that could bring the death penalty. he won't be read his miranda rights. they're going to use the public safety can exception. they're taking this extraordinary step because there could be an imminent threat still out there. i just got off the phone, george, with a senior law enforcement, of deep concern of ammunition, guns and working bombs these men had. they were so disciplined. >> any indication of another sleeper cell? >> right now, no evidence of a broader plot involving more people here, but law enforcement officials say they c
purchased, about the video surveillance that led them to dzhokhar tsarnaev, and the purpose is to show the evidence that they have against this guy, and they're going to lay some, but not all, of that out in the fbi affidavit. >> mike, precisely, specifically, what is he likely to be charged with? >> reporter: well, it's going to be terrorism-relatinged charges, and that could include a charge for use of weapons of mass destruction. the ied bombs will be, can fit under that section of the federal code, and that -- that and these other charges could -- would lead to the death penalty, if convicted. doesn't mean that the federal government will seek the death penalty, but these charges could result in the death penalty. we won't know whether the justice department is seeking the death penalty from this criminal complaint charge today. that will come much later. >> let's talk about the wound to the throat we're starting to hear about. that apparently has prevented him from being able to speak. how are interrogators going to get around this? just a simple, they ask questions and he writes
